Without a doubt, the strong suit of IBM’s iSeries and AS/400 systems is their sophisticated operating system, OS/400. But along with OS/400’s unmatched level of functionality and integration comes a complexity you must learn to manage. Starter Kit for the IBM iSeries and AS/400 provides essential information to help you understand the basic concepts and nuances of iSeries and AS/400 systems -- information that will make your job easier and will increase your comfort level working on these systems. The book is arranged in logical order from basic system setup information through some of the more important areas you need to understand to operate, program, and manage your system. Comprehensive sections provide essential information about the following topics:
- system setup -- including planning for installation, setting up a basic work environment, creating user profiles, establishing default public authorities, and managing PTFs
- operations -- including message handling, working with printer files and output queues, disk management, and job scheduling
- system management -- including backup and recovery and work management
- file basics -- including file structure, file overrides, logical files, and file sharing
- basic CL programming -- including coding CL with style, using APIs with CL, using CL programs with display files and database files, communicating between CL programs, and using commands
Two additional chapters focus on TCP/IP and Operations Navigator to get you up to speed on these two important aspects of working with iSeries and AS/00 systems today. Whether you’re a programmer, a system administrator, or an operator, the information presented in Starter Kit for the IBM iSeries and AS/400 will help you develop a basic working knowledge of some of the key concepts and functions you’ll encounter on these systems. With this foundation, you’ll be solidly prepared to explore each subject in depth and apply what you’ve learned to make your iSeries or AS/400 environment more secure, productive, and manageable.
